As Mary Jo Foley forecasted, a Vista SP1 drop was made in mid-July. We're hearing, however, the drop was made to a small group of random testers for "pre-beta" testing. Pre-beta testing is usually conducted to test software that is more mature than a first-stab, annihilate-your-machine alpha (VS2008 anyone?) but doesn't quite implement all the required functionalities to be labeled a true beta.

The service pack comes labeled with a build string matching its recently released WDK brother and smells of 2008 kernel, which is A Good Thing -- 6001.16549(longhorn_sp1beta1.070628-1825). (Thanks C.)

Queried Microsoft and beta participants are denying the program's existence, as expected. We'll have to suffer with our malfunctioning Windows Vista installs for just a tad longer.

Microsoft offered official confirmation that DirectX 10.1 in Windows VistaSP1 can be expected in the immediate future. The SIGGRAPH 2007 conference is the stage where Microsoft is presenting an introduction to Direct3D 10, but also the future of this application important]programming interface.

Direct3D 10 is an integer part of the DirectX 10 API available exclusively through Microsoft's latest operating system Windows Vista, in combination with the underlying graphics hardware. The Redmond company has repeatedly denied the possibility of backporting DirectX to Windows arguing that it would have to also change the core of the operating system.

Earlier I thought that there was nothing to Vista...........Just media hype with the AERO thing, but now that I am using Vista Ultimate I know that it was all true. AERO is definately something to drool over and the inbuilt security applications like defender and the improved firewall do a good job. I don't know about you but it does the job for me, although I cannot get the idea of removing Norton Internet Security out of my head, but whatever it is Windows Vista Ultimate clicks for me
